Craft of Jonesboro told tel* low Welfare Board nwhibars Wednesday that the board should be reorganized and given the power to hire and fire the director of the Welfare Department, Craft made the proposal at a dinner party here the board staged to honor him c:i the expiration of his slx*year term at thS stormy post. Under Crafts' proposal, the board would have the same power as the state Game and Fish Commission and Highway Commission to remove the department commissioner. The board members would be appointed by the governor, The board members would then name a commissioner. The governor could only remove the commissioner through a special hearing. The plan was immeidately endorsed by Welfare Commissioner Len Blaylock, who has been at odds ,with various board members since he took the post early last year. The board objected principally with Blaylock's firing Welfare Department workers across the state. The board, however, had seldom met before Blaylock became commissioner. Craft said his proposal was to take the "politicking" out of the Welfare Department. Marion Burton, Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller's executive secretary, said he would see whether the governor would agree to place the proposal in his call for a special session of the legislature next month. Dollar Drain Cut Plan Is MILITARY CASUALTIES: U.S. killed, 24,723 South Vietnamese Allies killed. 1,947 Enemy killed, 320, in Trouble |zingel isJKfish closely lated to the perch. Saenger THEATRE GLENN GEORGE WASHINGTON (AP) - The Johnson administration is running into trouble in its efforts to cut the international dollar drain this year by $3 billion. Some government officials have already conceded privately the goal in some areas of the program will be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to meet. But perhaps the sourest note in the entire picture is the deteriorating trade position which '.officials.:.-.-bianie'i on '> inflation ,'at home, strikes and the threat of m *^*' Tonlte Friday-Saturday THE WEST ABLAZE.. COURAGE AFLAME! MURPHY •FOR •KILLING strikes and what they call excessive wage settlements. The net result is a sharp rise in imports and a decline in the trade surplus. President Johnson unveiled his new balance-of-payments program on New Year's Day in a fresh attempt to lick a perennial problem which produced a $3.57 biUion deficit in 1967. Although exact figures won't be available until mid-May, officials now look for substantial improvement in the deficit for the first three months of this year compared with the last three months of 1967, But the deficit in the prior quarter was $1.85 billion and there's reportedly little chance it will drop to the quarterly level prevailing before devaluation of the British pound last November. The quarterly drain during the first three quarters of last year ranged from $533 million to $638 million. Johnson's new program called for congressional action on a variety of fronts but Congress has yet to complete work on even one of them. Passage of the proposed 10 per cent income tax surcharge is the keystone of the entire program. The House approved extension of the 5 per cent excise tax on airline tickets for international travel but deferred action on the major part of the travel program— a proposed tax on spending by U.S. tourists in other countries. The government fared better administratively. Effective next week, foreign tourists will be eligible for a wide range of discounts on travel and accommodations—part of an attempt to Attract more foreign tourists Rephans The Store Of Courtesy - BUY HER A DRESS FOR TUB SPECIAL DAY DRESSIS $ REG. 10, » , lUP RES. 12.99 REG. 14.90 One Table Material •OTHER MATEWAL REDUCED - 3 *1 ra JL Ladies Ousters .

The company also charged in a suit filed in U, S. District Court that additional income tax assessments for 1961, assessed by IRS amounting to $148,374 which it said was ac. cepted, and that it met the re. quirernents of the Internal R,'VuaU'j Code to be treated as a life insurance coxnptny for tux purposes. HOPE (AW STAR, Printed 1* OffJftt STUDENTS From (Page t) all but two entrances, There was some obvious student disatisfaction with the Stu* dents for a Democratic Society, which organized the protest, About 200 persons gathered in front of Kirk's office windows and chanted "The SD.S, must go!" Earlier a faculty committee met In emergency session on the student demands and ren* ommended that construction on the gymnasium be halted but that ties to the IDA be continued. The current protest began Tuesday noon and escalated later when the militant students blockaded Acting Dean Henry Colem.in and two associated in Coleman's Hamilton Hall office. About 5 a.m. Wednesday the Negroes in the group asked the white students to leave, asserting they were not committed to radical action. The group of white students then went to Los Library where they pushed past security guards and took over Kirk's office, hurling papers and books to the floor, damaging fixtures in a private bathroom and pasting signs on a window reading: "Liberated Area. Be Free to Join Us." Coleman was released along with William Kahn, university proctor, and Daniel Karlinsky, a college public relations man, hi the afternoon. Coleman said they had been well treated. Rockefeller Emissaries Push West By JACK BELL Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Two emissaries for New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller are heading into the Midwest today in a bid to generate a Republican presidential draft. Nonaligned party members generally doubt they'll succeed. But Rockefeller himself says he thinks the draft movement for him is gaining momentum—and says he's ready to run. The governor, asked Wednesday whether he's already jogging if not running, replied: "I haven't got my feet in concrete, I'll tell you that." The emissaries are Sen. Thruston B. Morton, R-Ky., and 1 William E. Miller, the 1964 Republican candidate for vice president. Their first stop is Minneapolis, Minn., where Gov. Harold LeVander is anally. The trip is the first of a series intended by Rockefeller backers to stir up enthusiasm for a draft among national convention delegates. But uninvolved party members generally think ths best Morton and Miller can hope for are some assurances that favorite-son and uncommitted delegations will stand fast against a possible blitz at the convention by Nixon forces. Rockefeller told newsmen in a Capitol Hill hallway the draft movement is enlisting mon people "and they're active and they're raising more money. "I would say that it's gaining momentum," he said. "I think the delegates are looser than people think." Morton and Miller planned to fly to Des Moines later today, and back to Chicago for an overnight stop and breakfast meeting Friday. After lunch in St. Louis, Mo., Friday, they hop to Topeka, Kan., for a dinner to be presided over by Sen. James B. Pearson, R-Kan. They're scheduled to be In Detroit. Mich., Saturday. Rockefeller was in Washington to propose congressional enactment of "national universal health insurance" and hospital cost controls. Contributory health insurance has largely succeeded in the case of medicare, he told the Senate Government Operations Committee. But he said serious shortcomings in paying medical care strictly out of tax revenues have been seen in the case of medicaid, the health plan for the indigent.

Hegroes Win Confessions Boston U. BOSTON (AP) - A sit-in by some 300 Negro students behind chained doors at Boston Univer* slty has ended with a promise by President Arland F. Christ* Janer to increase the number of Negro students and teachers and to offer a course in Afro- American history. A 12-hour demonstration in which the students took over the administration building was halted Wednesday night after Christ-Janer made a point*by- point reply promising to work for most of their demands. The university president agreed that the planned Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. chair of social ethics should be reserved for a Negro professor, that 10 recently established King scholarships be designated for Negro graduate students and that "every effort will be made to recruit Negro scholars at every professional rank." The demands were made by the university's Afro-American students society, known as UMOJA, a word moaning "unity" in Swahili. On only one point did Christ- Janer express less than complete agreement. This was the students' proposal that the School of Theology building be named for Dr. King, a 1955 graduate of the school. He did say that "every effort will be exerted to admit up to 100 Negro students to the freshman class in the fall of 1968, under some financial aid plan based on need." He added that the university "is prepared to expand its enrollment at all levels for the academic year 196869 to include an additional 100 qualified Negro students not needing financial assistance." The dean of students, Staton R. Curtis, said there are 14,000 students in the university and 900 to 1,000 faculty members. He said the number of Negroes in either group is unknown because such information is not included on records. Tables Set Up for Those Filing LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The Hotel Marion in downtown little Rock, where more politics purportedly transpire than at the state Capitol, will not witness this year the traditional last day filing ceremonies by political candidates. Secretary of State Kelly Bryant said Wednesday he would file candidates on last day and a half in the foyer of the state Capitol to facilitate the filing of last-minute candidates. Bryant invited both Democratic and Republican parties to use foyer space to collect fees from potential candidates next Tuesday and Wednesday. Foodstuffs for Tornado Area LITTLE ROCK (AP) - State Welfare Comrn.'ssioner Len Blaylpck said Wednesday that the department had sent nearly 241000 pounds of foodstuffs to tornado ravaged Greenwood. Blaylock told the state Welfare Board at a meeting here that the department was ready to take up the slack if the Red Cross curtailed any of its activities in the area, which was struck Friday. Taking Pain Out of Tax Paying INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) Marion County Treasurer John Dobkins has found .1 way to take some of the pain out of paying taxes. From now until the May 6 deadline, residents can charge their personal property and real estate taxes on an Indianapolis bank's credit card. YOU HAVE From (Page 1) changed radically. "You can still make salami pictures that get by," he admitted. "But stars alone don't guar- anee success anymore, nor does subject matter alone, "The only thing that connects is when you strike a chord of recognition in the 16 to 25-year- age group— not the bobby soxers or the dropouts but the young people who don't watch television because they are more interested in life, who are committed and aware," Peter has a higher opinion of European than most American directors. "Too many of our directors are only one-dimensional craftsmen. They are too intrigued with the camera alone. Very few want to spend time working with the writer on the script, be- cau.se it cuts down o/i the number of films they can make." NORTH VIETNAM From (Page One) the Polish pressure for selection of Warsaw—a site already spurned by the United States on the ground Poland is an ally of Hanoi's-points up what they feel is apparent: That North Vietnam regards selection of a site as an issue of substantial importance. U.S. officials say there seem to be several reasons for this. One is that Nortli Vietnam believes that by manipulating public opinion pressures against the Johnson administration it can force the U.S. to agree to a place agreeable to Hanoi and painful to Washington. Another reason, U.S.officials believe, is that if the site is unfavorable enough to U.S. interest and disliked enough by South Vietnam the issue may be used to drive a wedge between the Washington and Saigon governments— which is one reason why the White House and State Department have been nervous about the site selection process from the beginning. A third motivation suggested by American officials is that North Vietnam feels it is important to determine at the outset how much power it can wield- through the successful marshaling of the worldwide desire for ending the war— on a specific issue of peace negotiations such as the problem of selecting a place to begin meeting.
